Designed by Studio North in Windermere, Canada, the birdhut is a treetop perch that sits on wooden stilts along a forested hillside. Immersed in the tree canopy, the hut can accommodate two people, twelve varieties of birds, and whatever inquisitive critters that come by to visit. The materials, form, and orientation of the birdhut were designed to offer nesting opportunities for as wide a variety of local birds as possible.
The platform and cladding for the hut is made of planks reclaimed from an old cabin deck. The front facade is clad with western red cedar shingles cut with a custom rounded profile, the radius which were determined by the size of the birdhouse opening and the width of each shingle.
